While it may be a bit nippy outside (to say the least!), the winter doesn’t stop some people from celebrating their love for each other by having a winter wedding. In fact, Christmas and Valentine’s Day, both notoriously cold months, are incredibly popular times for lovebirds to tie the knot. With farm wedding venues becoming more popular - those which convert rustic barns into cosy winter wonderlands, there's no surprise Winter is becoming the more popular season to get hitched!  The winter may bring with it a sense of romanticism, particularly if it snows, but the logistics of finding an outfit perfect for the occasion can be a little tricky. The bride may have the outfits for the bridal party all sorted and ready to go, but what do you wear as a guest? 

The main things that you need to consider aren’t just colour, style and theme when it comes to a winter wedding. Comfort and warmth also come into the equation. Hanging around at a church waiting for the blushing bride, before making your way to the reception venue, will mean that you’ll need to wrap up warm more than you would during the summer months, so what do you wear? 

While it’s often fairly simple to choose an evening dress from George that will be perfect for a wedding, you also have to consider accessories and warmth when you’re planning to attend a winter celebration. Invest in some nice shoes and a bag, as well as a warm coat that is smart and stylish. Invest in a classic wool coat in a neutral colour that can be used again and again, or, if you’re feeling brave, bold and bright would be the way to go – be the one to brighten up the cold day, if you dare! Alternatively, you could opt to wear a fur coat (or faux fur) to ooze warmth, elegance and chic vibes. 

Keep your legs covered and warm at a winter wedding with opaque tights. Choose an evening dress or party outfit that would suit a pair of thick denier tights and you’ll look simply fabulous. As with all weddings, if you are going to be on your feet all day, consider taking two pairs of shoes with you – one pair of heels for the service and a pair of flats for when the dancing begins. There’s nothing worse than having sore feet and dealing with blisters, neither is it sensible to take your shoes off altogether because you don’t know what’s been spilt or smashed on the floor! Rollasoles are a great option, because they can be popped into your handbag with no problem at all. 

Pay attention to the theme of the wedding, if there is one, and if you’re given a hint of a dress code on your invitation, use it to your advantage so that you can style yourself to suit. Don’t feel bad about turning up in gloves and a hat if it’s particularly cold outside; take along a larger bag that you can store such things in once you’re at the reception, and store it somewhere safe until you decide to head home. 

As long as you don’t end up wearing the same colour as the bridesmaids (and of course you need to avoid winter white) - any style of outfit you choose will look fabulous. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t look chic and glamorous; the outfit will just require a little more planning, and another layer or two, that’s all!
